Bellevue LifeSpring’s Holiday Adopt-A-Family program allows caring individuals, concerned families, and community groups to personally make a difference for a struggling family during Thanksgiving and/or Christmas. The Adopt-A-Family program is a matching program. Members of the community sponsor struggling families that best meet their ability to give.

Heritage Bank is accepting all Non Perishable foods at their Bellevue branch located at 520 – 112th Ave NE Ste 160.  Thank you for your consideration.
